The government of imams

June 07 2015

Muslim religious leaders have always patronized the Samajwadi Party’s governments; after all, Mulayam is a big believer in Muslim votes. When Mulayam was the chief minister of UP, it was said that his government was actually run by the all-powerful Imam Bukhari of Jama Masjid. One can see the influence of Maulana Arshad Madani, head of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind in Akhilesh’s present government. So much so that in western UP, regular transfers and postings can’t take place without Madani’s permission. Madani’s front man Ashu Malik can be seen active in this regard. Malik, who had an ordinary photography shop once, is one of the biggies in SP, and has direct contact with Mulayam. That’s not all — Madani wants Akhilesh to include Malik in his Cabinet, too.
